Researchers at the University of Lethbridge recently found at least 13 cannabis plants that, due to their high levels of CBD, appeared to affect the ACE2 pathways that the Corona virus uses to access the body.


The results of the study were printed in online journal Preprints. The findings show that hemp extracts high in CBD might help block proteins that make it possible for COVID-19 to enter host cells. We'll certainly be keeping our eyes on this research - because...science!

Last year, Colorado set a new record for state cannabis sales with 1.75 billion dollar's worth. This came after there was some speculation that the cannabis market was saturated and plateauing. The sales gathered 304.2 million dollars in taxes for the state. In addition to the growing acceptance of cannabis in popular culture, another force in the growth of cannabis sales has been the growing selection of different product types, including concentrates, cartridges, infused drinks, and a vast array of edibles. If you haven't checked out what's new in awhile, come check out your local selection. More new products are being developed every day, and with California's recent legalization, the cannabis sales record will probably be surpassed again soon.

There is currently a legal bill in the early draft stage that could lead to the legalization of cannabis in Mexico. The bill is 228 pages long and features proposed regulations that would create a structure for legal cannabis in the country. Some of the highlights are that it would allow people 18 and up to both posses and grow cannabis for personal use. Individuals would be allowed cultivate up to 480 grams per year, from as many as 20 registered plants. While the limit for personal possession would be 28 grams, having up to 200 grams would be decriminalized. Unlike here in Oregon, the bill proposes that public consumption would be legal, with the exception of smoke-free areas. Maybe if Mexico passes the bill Oregon and other states will follow their lead on allowing public consumption. Read more from full source article here.
